New Mexican Food

September - November 2009 379

New Mexican food is its own thing–not Mexican, not Texan, not Latin or Caribbean. It is mostly made of tortillas, beans, cheese, corn, pork, RED AND GREEN CHILI.  It’s not my favorite of all the world’s cuisines but all of a sudden, for no apparent reason, I will crave it. Like today. Working late again will be my excuse for some of the hot greasy chili-laden stuff  of ex-patriot New Mexican dreams. Minnesotans usually crave meat loaf and walleye and cinnamon rolls, flavored with salt and sugar and butter, but we do have our more adventurous moments.

  1. Marj I am drooling uncontrollably. Ex-patriot New Mexican dreams indeed.


  2. This picture made me so so so hungry for New Mexican food. I went to Agave last week in Lewes which is REPUTED to have some of the best Mexican food in the state, according to Delaware Today magazine, what do they know. It was good I had chicken enchiladas. They were good, but something going on with the flavor that did not set well with me. Won’t be satisfied until I have the real thing. However, their guacamole was excellent. Yum…thanks
